Configure the Show Report on Launch of Files option

The Show Report on Launch of Files option lets you specify when and for what type of file you want to be prompted to select a suitable action. For example, you can specify the type of downloaded files for which Download Insight asks you to decide what to do with the file and how frequently these prompts for a suitable action must appear.

You can use the following options to configure Show Report on Launch of Files:

Always

When you set the Show Report on Launch of Files option to Always, Download Insight prompts you for a suitable action in case of safe and unknown files. In this case, the Download Insight window appears whenever you try to launch any downloaded file that has a safe or an unknown reputation score. In this window, you can view details about the file and the options that let you select a suitable action for the file.

In the case of unsafe files, your Norton product identifies them as threats and removes them.

Unproven Only

When you set the Show Report on Launch of Files option to Unproven Only, Download Insight prompts you to select a suitable action for unknown files only. In this case, the Download Insight window appears whenever you try to launch any downloaded file that has an unknown reputation score. In this window, you can view details about the file and the options that let you select a suitable action for the file.

By default, the Show Report on Launch of Files option is set to Unproven Only. In this case, your Norton product allows the execution of the safe files without prompting you for a suitable action. In the case of unsafe files, your Norton product identifies them as threat and removes them.

Never

When you set the Show Report on Launch of Files option to Never, Download Insight does not prompt you to select a suitable action for any type of file that you download. In this case, the Download Insight window does not appear whenever you try to launch any downloaded file.

The alert messages that you suppress and the activity details can be reviewed at any time in Security History.
